Abstract: This paper deals with the Japanese Naval Memorial which is located at the Kalkara Naval Cemetery in Malta. It seeks to understand why Japanese coming to Malta are motivated to pay a visit to such a site, which has a symbiotic relationship with the memory of the First World War. This memorial is actually dedicated to the 68 war-dead, who belonged to His Imperial Japanese Majesty’s 2nd Detached Squadron which operated from Malta in 1917 and 1918. The squadron played an important role in protecting the Allied convoys in the Mediterranean.
